Bobcats recruit: Braeden Anderson


I have heard that the Bobcat basketball staff is recruiting Braeden Anderson a 6-8 (I have also seen him listed at 6-9) 230 pound, 2010 forward / center prospect. Anderson is currently playing for Christian Faith prep school in North Carolina. Once again, North Carolina is not normally in the Bobcats recruiting territory so I was originally a little dubious of this information until I did a little research.

This is Anderson first year playing for Christian Faith Prep school. Previous to this he played for Foothills Composite high school in Okotoks, Alberta Canada, and that is where I believe we spotted him. Christian Faith Prep school seems to be a destination spot for Canadian high school player as I believe well over half their roster is composed of Canadian.

For Foothills Composite in 2008-09 (junior year) Anderson averaged 25 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assists a game. This past season for Christian Faith Prep he averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds, but his play has put him on the national recruiting radar.

Here are some evaluations of Anderson

ESPN rating 90

  • January, 2010: This strong well-built power forward is an intriguing guy who could really make a jump over the next year. He has the size and athleticism that leads to a high major power forward, but he has some work still to do
  • Braeden Anderson: Anderson is a relative unknown, but the Canadian import has some definite ability. The junior power forward is still raw, but he is dunks everything down low, and has a good frame to handle contact as well grab rebounds. He will be playing his prep ball at Christian Faith Academy this winter, and there is no doubt that as he is seen more his stock will definitely be on the rise.
  • Braeden Anderson, PF (6-8, 230)
    Creedmoor, N.C./Christian Faith

    Anderson, a native of Calgary, Alberta, is a well-built post player with excellent athleticism. He caught the attention of observers early on with the combination of his size, high motor and ability to finish with power above the rim. The bouncy Canadian is solid on the offensive end, his effort on the glass, quickness and agility, ability to run the floor in transition and sheer energy are good barometers of his high potential down the road. Anderson’s college-ready frame, aggressiveness, hustle and presence in the paint will only complement his developing skill set — especially as he gains more experience playing against high-level competition in the states.
  • Evaluation Summary: Anderson is a scrappy, hard-nosed player who is not afraid to get his hands dirty inside the paint. He is a tenacious rebounder who is blessed with a proto-typical power forward body. Braedon is equally aggressive at the offensive end where he will drive you hard to the rack and try to dunk over you. He has both a face-up game and a back-to-the-basket one too. His perimeter game does need work, while his ball handling and jump shot need some polishing.

Playing for Foothills Composite has really lifted his recruitment. This list this past summer was said to included Montana, Montana State Nevada and Portland State, but according to a couple articles posted in the last month his current list is, San Diego, East Carolina, NC State, Arkansas, Providence, Richmond, Miami, VCU, Missouri, Auburn and Montana St. Pick the school that looks to be the odd ball in the group. I believe MSU is still on his list due to close proximity to his home town in Canada, but I am not holding my breath on this one. I hear his dream school is North Carolina, but they do not seem to be in the mix right now. The other thing that I have heard is that he may reclassify himself to the 2011 class in hopes improving his recruiting stock.
